Imagine getting a personalized letter from Santa himself? That’s what will happen for young kids around Strathmore and students from Grades 1 to 3 in the community who take part in Letters to Santa in Strathmore this year.

One of Santa’s helpers, Debbie Mitzner of ReMax, explains how the campaign works.

Mitzner and the folks at Strathmore Sobeys are teaming up to ensure the letters get sent away on time.

Mitzner explained that she thinks it’s been about five years since kids in the area have participated in a Letters to Santa campaign. This year she partnered with Strathmore Sobeys and now kids can visit the North Pole mailbox at Sobeys during regular business hours and they will get a letter back from Santa Claus.

“We also teamed up with the schools and Grades 1 to 3, because they have a creative writing curriculum. They will be doing it also with classes,” she said.

When asked why she wanted to work on this community project, Mitzner said, “A) it’s magical and B) I did it as a child.” She explained that her kids wrote letters to Santa Claus as well.
“We're just giving back to the community, we felt it was something that Strathmore hasn't participated in and Sobeys jumped on board, and they decorated it really nicely with presents. There's a box at the front doors by the shopping carts,” said Mitzner.

To participate in Letters to Santa, kids should drop off their letters at The North Pole Mailbox located at the Strathmore Sobey's. No postage is necessary.


Santa's mailing address is:

Santa Claus

North Pole

In order to get a reply before Christmas, kids should post their letters to the North Pole before Monday, December 20, 2021. You should also include a return address on your letter. Everyone who mails a letter will receive a response back in the mail with a Santa stamp. Letters received after December 20, 2021, will receive replies from Santa after Christmas.
